A man reportedly armed with a sawn-off shotgun has taken people hostage at a bowling alley in Nuneaton in England’s Warwickshire, according to local media.
Police tweeted that they are attending an incident at Bermuda Park and asked people to keep away from the area.
One man tweeted: ‘Odeon Cinema in Nuneaton, Warwickshire on lockdown, man inside has taken hostages. Police have closed the area.’ It’s believed the man is holding the hostages in MFA Bowl, while the neighbouring Odeon Cinema and a soft-play area for kids are also on lockdown. Bermuda Park would have been particularly busy today, with it being a Sunday lunchtime and the start of half term.
Witnesses claim the man is brandishing a sawn-off shotgun.
